Cemetery notes and/or description:
This old cemetery was opened in the 1870s to provide a final resting place for patients whose families did not claim their bodies. It is now one of The State Psychiatric Hospital Cemeteries.

From the 1870s to 1943, most graves were marked with small, sequentially numbered marble stones, with no names or dates.

The cemetery is located in Athens Township, Athens County, Ohio, and is # 527 (Old Athens Hospital Cemetery) in “Ohio Cemeteries 1803-2003”, compiled by the Ohio Genealogical Society.
